MOSCOW, May 21. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has conveyed condolences over the EgyptAir Flight MS804 crash to his Egyptian colleague Sameh Shoukry in a telephone conversation, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.
"Considerable attention during the conversation was paid to the results of the international ministerial meeting on Libya on May 16 in Vienna which was supposed to give an impetus to political process on the basis of Skhirat Agreement of 17 December 2015," the foreign ministry said.
Lavrov and Shoukry also exchanged opinions on the Palestinian-Israeli settlement and discussed issues of further cooperation in the framework of the International Syria Support Group. The foreign ministers confirmed mutual intentions to continue Russian-Egyptian cooperation in the aforementioned matters.
On May 19, the EgyptAir A320 aircraft en route from Paris to Egypt vanished 10 miles into Egyptian airspace while flying at around 11,000 meters. The aircraft disappeared from radars at 2:45am local time (3:45am Moscow time), 20 minutes before it was due to land. The aircraft made two sharp turns and dropped more than 7,600 meters before plunging into the Mediterranean Sea.
There were 56 passengers and 10 crew onboard. According to the passenger list provided by EgyptAir, 15 French citizens and 30 Egyptians were onboard, along with citizens of UK, Belgium, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Chad, Portugal, Algeria, Canada.
